Kim Goldberg, author of The Barefoot Channel: Community Television as a Tool for Social Change (as well as the person who maintains the Changes Facebook page and occasionally serves as a guest host on the show) joins Suzanne during CHLY's spring fund drive to talk about the value of community radio. Excerpts from past Changes interviews illustrate several aspects of the important role that CHLY plays in the community. Although most programming is done by volunteers, CHLY has operating expenses, such as the ongoing need to maintain and upgrade equipment, pay our small but indispensable staff, and take care of such things as fees to SOCAN, which give us the right to play recorded music on the air - and which provide essential income to the artists. Less than half of CHLY's funding comes from VIU student fees. The rest comes from listeners, including individuals and local business owners.
